EEPOET OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OP STREETS. 

The constantly increasing travel and *• wear and tear " on 
the roads in and around our villages necessitate improved 
methods of repairing. Long and convincing experience of a 
host of road-makers shows that broken stone is the best and 
most economical material for us to use in mending our ways. 
In order to obtain this material at lowest cost, the Town 
ought to own a stone-crusher. Such a machine as Andover 
needs would cost $2400, and I earnestly advise the purchase 
of one of the best make. In advising this purchase, I do so 
after much thought and investigation, having visited several 
places in which the crushers are used, and talked with the 
operators. 

There are thousands of loads of good ttone more con- 
venient to the roads than many of our gravel-banks, and all 
observing citizens know that our famous Indian Ridge bank 
furnishes more bulk of stone than gravel, and they must be 
separated by hand-picking, raking, and screening before 
using. Had we a crusher, all this mixed material could be 
run through it just as dug from the bank, and into a revolving- 
screen attached to the crusher, which would deliver the 
different grades of material separate and ready for the road, 
and, I believe, at less cost than by the tedious method of 
hand-picking, raking, screening and wheeling away. 

Concerning the cost of repairing a crusher, which some 
citizens fear would be excessive, — the town of Methuen 
bought a crusher last year : half a mile of roadway, forty- 
three feet wide, has been covered with stone from that 
crusher without so much as a cent of cost for repairs. Ed- 
ward Adams, of North Andover, ran his crusher two years 
with very little expense for repairing, and earned much more 
than its cost witli it in that time. 

Respectfully, 

JOSEPH T. LOVEJOY.

REPORT 



OF THE 



Selectmen and Assessors. 



SCHOOLS AND SCHOOL-HOUSES. 

The School Committee recommend the appropriation of 
the following sums of money for use in their department 
the ensuing year : Schools, $16000 : School-houses, repairs, 
$1200 ; School-books and supplies, $1000 ; for enlargement 
of the Abbott Village School-house, $2500 : for enlargement 
of the West Centre School-house, $800 : for grading around 
the Central Grammar and the Ballard Yale School-houses, 
and cementing the cellar of the latter building, $1000 ; for 
improving the ventilation of several of the School-houses, 
$2500. We refer to the Report of the School Committee for 
further information relating to the foregoing recommendations. 



HIGHWAYS, BRIDGES, AND SIDEWALKS. 

In consequence of the refusal of the Town to elect Road 
Commissioners at its last annual meeting, the Selectmen 
were by law required to appoint a Superintendent of Streets. 
Joseph T. Lovejoy was duly appointed to that office. It is 
the opinion of this Board that Mr. Lovejoy has faithfully 
performed the duties of his office : having, we believe, met 
the reasonable expectations of the people. Of all the public 
offices in the town, this one is the most difficult to fill with 
satisfaction to all concerned. Everybody uses the public 



39 

ways ; everything done, or left undone, is open to the watch- 
ful public eye, and harsh and unjust criticisms are too often 
made on those who do their duty as well as circumstances 
allow. We believe that, all things considered, the roads are 
generally in better condition than we have seen them in the 
past. It remains to be seen whether the Town will wisely 
continue its present system, or take a backward step by 
choosing Road Commissioners. We advise the appropriation 
of 18000 for Highways, and $1000 for Sidewalks. 

REMOVING SNOW. 

The expenditure on this account bliows .small in the Re- 
port : but that showing is deceptive, as, owing to the earlier 
closing of accounts, many snow-bills are laid over to the 
March pay-day. These unpaid bills and the warning ex- 
perience of unexpected snow-storms came us to ask the usual 
appropriation, $800, for 1890-91. 

HIGHWAY HORSES, 

We call your attention to that part of the Report relating 
to Earnings of Horses, which speaks for itself. The items of 
earnings are as follows : Highways and sidewalks, $1352.40 : 
Removing snow, 935. 85 ; Fire department. $58. 00 : Total, 
$1446.25. We believe that the purchase of the horses is a 
good investment for the Town. Having now two teams, two 
drivers are needed, therefore we recommend an increased 
appropriation for drivers and horses for the coming year — 
$2000. 

PAY 01 TOWN OFFICERS. 
We recommend an appropriation of $5000 for this purpose. 

TOWN HOUSE. 

The following changes and improvements were made in 
the Town House the past year: The Post-Office was moved 



40 

into a room provided for it in the lower ball, A Police 
room containing two lock-up cells, and a room for the School 
Committee, with the passage-way, cover the remainder of 
the former hall. The former Post-Office room was partitioned 
into three much-needed office-rooms. All the town offices 
are now located on the ground floor of the Town House, 
ample of room and easy of access. An excellent and satis- 
factory steam-heating apparatus was put in, and a complete 
system of electric lighting gives abundant light throughout 
the building. The general use of the side entrance to the 
Post-Office necessitated the placing snow-guards on the roof, 
which was done. These improvements have caused a larger 
expense than was expected or provided for, consequently 
several bills incurred therefor await payment. To provide 
for the payment of said bills and the cost of needed repairs 
and furniture and running expenses will require an appro- 
priation of 12000. 

HAY SCALES. 

This continues to be the only dividend-paying property 
owned by the Town. But repairs of the wood-work must be 
made when necessary. Such repairing was done last year, 
and the cost thereof, with the running expenses, being- 
greater than the appropriation, the carpenter's bill remains 
unpaid. We ask an appropriation of 1100. 

FIRE DEPARTMENT. 

The Fire Engineers ask for running expenses — $2500: 
new hose, $500 ; fire alarm, $1000. 

INSURANCE. 

$300 will be enough to cover the cost of renewal of policies 
on town buildings as they expire in the next year. The 
Town now owns $175,000 worth of buildings, which mnst be 
kept insured. 



4i 



STREET LIGHTING. 

The existing contract between the Town and the Andover 
Electric Company will expire September 12, 1891. Said con- 
tract price is 12800 per year. We are informed that the 
Company will ask an increased price for a new contract on 
the basis of the present supply of light, and that additional 
lights are needed at several points. It is evident that more 
light and more money will be needed, and we recommend an 
appropriation of #3500. 

PRINTING AND STATIONERY. 

Owing to unavoidable delay in the printing of the new- 
Valuation of Real Estate, the appropriation made at the last 
annual meetiing, could not be used to pay the printer for 
that work, consequently that bill must be paid out of the 
next appropriation, and $1000 will be needed to pay for that, 
the Town Report, the Water Board and School Board Re- 
ports, and the stationery bills. 

STATE AID AND MILITARY AID. 

The appropriations for these purposes are expended by 
direction of the Commissioners of State Aid. Whatever 
allowances are made must be paid. We think that $1400 
for State Aid and #900 for Military Aid will be sufficient. 

MEMORIAL DAY. 

We recommend the appropriation of $200 for this purpose, 
and that the money be expended under direction of Post 99, 
G.A.R. 

SPRING GROVE CEMETERY. 

The Committee in charge ask for $200 and the money 
received from sales of lots, grass, etc. 



SHADE TREES. 

The beautifying effects un our streets of the animal tree 
appropriation are increasingly apparent year by year. We 
recommend the usual sum — $100 — for this purpose, and 
that it he expended by the Tree Committee of the Farmers' 
Club, ns heretofore; 

STATE AND COUNTY TAXES. 

Wc have not been informed of the amounts that will be 
required under these heads. Probably the same appropria- 
tions as last year — $6000 for State, and $6000 for County — 
will be sufficient. 

DISCOUNT ON TAXES. 

Nine tenths or more of the taxes are paid " on the dis- 
count " each year, but as the discount appropriation is made 
before the amount of the tax levy is ascertained, we can only 
guess at the amount which may be allowed in case the dis- 
count method is continued. We advise an appropriation of 
$3500. 

ABATEMENT AND REMISSION OP TAXES. 
$400 will be sufficient for this account. 

INTEREST ON NOTES, BONDS, AND PUNDS. 

$8500 will be needed on these accounts. 65000 of the 
Water Loan bonded debt being paid each year, the interest 
expense on that account decreases $200 per year. 

WATERWORKS. 

The Water Commissioners ask for the following amounts : 
Use of Hydrants, and Water in Town Buildings, #4000 : 
Service-pipe, $3000 : Sinking Fund, $150. 



MISCELLANEOUS. 

This appropriation being intended to cover all expenditures 
and liabilities not otherwise provided for, it will be well to 
have it large enough, and we advise the same amount as last 
year — -$1500. 

THE FINANCIAL YEAE. 

At the last annual meeting the Town amended Section 1st 
of Article 3d of the Town By-Laws so as to read as follows : 

'• The financial year shall begin with the Tuesday following 
the second Monday of January in each year, and end with 
the Monday preceding the second Tuesday of January in the 
next year/' 

The change was necessary in order to allow sufficient time 
for the work of closing the accounts and preparing the An- 
nual Report ; but in making the change no provision was 
made for a pay-day in February. Such provision ought to 
be made at the next meeting by giving the Selectmen and 
Treasurer the requisite authority.

Overseers' Report. 



We have but little to report concerning this department, 
besides the accounts and statistics on other pages. " The 
short and simple annals of the poor " relate with us mostly 
to hard, dry figures of expense, instead of speech. Poverty 
is cheap, but it costs our generous Town a large amount of 
money every year. The total expenditure of the past year, 
as shown in the accounts, is about the same as that of 1889 ; 
but if the unpaid bills were added the 1890 expense would 
appear much larger. Those unpaid bills are mostly on 
" Relief Out" account, from cities and towns, received since 
the January pay-day. 

In order to save the Town's money, we removed four 
mildly insane persons from hospitals to the Almshouse, early 
in the year, and they are now being supported for less than 
two thirds of the former cost, and are more at home. The 
condition of the house is excellent, as usual. Mr. and Mrs. 
Allen have been in charge nearly twelve years, and their record 
lor good management and kind care of the inmates is a credit 
to themselves and the Town. 

The necessity for a larger and better supply of water being 
apparent, the Board introduced Haggett's Pond, and it has 
proved to be the one thing most needed. Its possible value 
as a fire-extinguisher in case of emergency cannot be esti- 
mated. 

The tramp nuisance continues to increase — 1225 in 1889, 
1618 in 1890 — another phase of pauperism, to which some 
preventive or curative remedy should be applied ; but what 
that remedy shall or can be we know not. The cause is 
beyond our reach. We cannot prevent their coming, nor 
refuse them shelter and the cup of cold water and the 
crackers which they enjoy at our expense.

Value of property recovered, 685 00 

Value of equipments in the hands of Police, 125 00 

The pleasant, convenient, well-furnished room which has 
been provided for the police is much appreciated by us. 



57 

The cells are a great convenience. Ten prisoners have been 
locked up, and four suspicious persons detained, in the four 
or five months they have been in use. The carriage cost 
for taking them to the almshouse for detention would have 
been $1.00 each ; thus #14.00 should be placed to the credit 
of the cells. 

The tramp nuisance is increasing ; but I think it would 
be checked if each one was made to work every morning to 
pay for his night's lodging. If a room could be fitted up in 
the basement of the Town House, they could be set at work 
at whatever was being done at the time, under the super- 
vision of the police, and forced to do the work ; then, I think, 
we would not have so many tramps. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GEORGE F. CHEEPER, 

Chief of Police. 

Andovek, Jan. 12, 1891.

Nineteenth Annual Report 



OF THE 



Trustees of Memorial Hall 



The only matter in connection with the Library that calls 
for special mention is its growth. The gradual accumulation 
of books has more than filled our accessible shelf-room ; and 
this will probably have to be enlarged during the present 
year. The contemplated change can be made without any 
considerable expense, but it will involve a much-to-be-regretted 
sacrifice of space now devoted to the reading-room. The 
time is probably not far distant when the upper hall will have 
to be used as reading-room, and the lower hall surrendered 
wdiolly to the library. 

The Trustees have received a gift of one hundred dollars 
'from the Woman's Christian Temperance Union, the income 
of which is to be devoted to the purchase of temperance lit- 
erature suitable for young people. 

It has excited surprise in some quarters that the Trustees 
do not abate the nuisance of dim and smoky lamps in the 
reading-room, when electricity is brought to their very door. 
They would be glad to abate it ; and if a sufficient number 
of public spirited patrons of the Library will combine to ob- 
tain from the Town an appropriation of two hundred dollars 
a year, it can be abated. The Trustees can find the means 
to put all the necessary apparatus into the building. But 
they cannot pay the running expenses of electrical lighting 
without the above-mentioned assistance. 



74 

The outside wood-work of the building has been thoroughly 

painted since our last report, and the annual examination of 
the property shows it to he in a good state of preservation. 

Respectfully submitted.
